"In order to bring the diverse disciplines together in a meaningful way, the HDSA2017 program focused on the thematic thread and the process of going ‘on and off-the grid’, – a crucial societal topic and ongoing discussion at stake in both design/art and developer practices. By developing an elaborate hands-on program H&D invited the Summer Academy participants to reflect and question dependence and obedience of our daily work and living environments. How can we, as modern nomadic workers who often do not differentiate between work and private life, look critically at infrastructure, networks and systems we rely on? Are we as steadily connected networkers capable of disconnecting from existing grids? Can we rethink and build self-sustaining environments that shape our future practices in unexpected ways?The program challenged and activated the participants to use and push the boundaries of existing technology and programming platforms (web, hardware, software), networks online/offline (internet, deep web, darknet, peer 2 peer, blockchain), and user experience, all in a practical manner while incorporating content matters and ethical consequences of the proposed technologies and processes."

the theme of Open Set 2016 (both for the events in Seoul and Rotterdam) was Memories of the Future, and it explored how the notion and perception of memory can be used to stimulate alternative approaches towards the future. How are memory and the future connected? When we construct the future we use the same process as when we reconstruct the past: we can’t imagine the future in a vacuum, separate from our own experience, and cultural and historical references. We re-contextualize our previous experience (as individuals and as collectives), give it new meaning based on the conditions of a present moment, and transform it into a future possibility. We would argue, therefore, that memory should not be seen as an archive of references or stock of information, but rather as a verb, an action, a process, that helps us reach the future. But how do we activate memory? Is memory something set by our cultural frames of reference? Or are memory and heritage, as well as the future, concepts which can be brought to a public debate? In this context, design and art can be seen as agents, while proposing visual narratives, experiences or group actions, through which the future and memory can be observed and discussed by large audiences. website

designing connected objects

The types of technology and its potential in the context of connected devices. To infuse a product with behaviours, services and real-world user scenarios to get a sense of the complete product. Prototyping! We won’t be working with the tech itself to create the experience prototypes, as it’s a bit much for a week, but you will learn the bare basics of prototyping and fabrication like 3d printing, Arduino, electronics and making dummy apps. Concept/product communication skills. Video Website

open set

La thématique de Open Set 2016 était «memories of the future». Cette thématique nous interrogeait sur des sujets très divers comme les notions de futur et de passé.Quelques exemples de sujets abordés lors de la summer school :- Jeux et fictions comme stratégies pour imaginer et expérimenter des futurs alternatifs - Journalisme visuel et narratif comme stratégie pour organiser, découvrir ou oublier des souvenirs - Les nouvelles formes, fictions et enjeux de l’identité- Le lien entre les objets et les informations dans les archives - L’importance et la fonction des archives dans des futurs possibles - Les tendances des espaces de publication, de communica-tion et d’interaction (online, digitale ou hybride).- Les canons esthétiques d’Internet et des espaces virtuels- Le processus créatif : l’importance de la compétition, l’espace et le mouvementintervenants : Åbäke, Rick Poynor, Studio Dumbar , Liza Enebeis, Olia Lialina, Rejane Dal Bello, Max Bruinsma, Bruno Setola, Max Bruinsma, Paul Soulellis, Thought Collider, Jan van Toorn website

designing connected objects

Andrew Spitz et Ruben Van der Vleutende Frolic Studio On a appris des méthodes pour la conception et la réalisa-tion de produits connectés (IoT). En binôme avec Wei Peng on a conçu “b-Wave”, un bracelet connecté qui permet aux porteurs de trouver des personnes qui ont des goûts musi-caux similaires. En parallèle on a étudié les principes du «IoT manifesto» et nous les avons appliqué à nos projets. Le projet a été conçu avec une imprimante 3D, RFduino et Proto.io.manifeste pour la création des objets connectés consiste de 10 points : 1.We Don’t Believe The Hype2.We Design Useful Things3.We Aim For The Win-Win-Win4.We Keep Everyone And Every Thing Secure5.We Build And Promote A Culture Of Privacy6.We Are Deliberate About What Data We Collect7.We Make The Parties Associated With An Iot Product Explicit8.We Empower Users To Be The Masters Of Their Own Domain9.We Design Things For Their Lifetime10.In The End, We Are Human Beings.
